Fuel Economy Tip – Use Mass Transit

Today’s tip may not help you save a lot of money, but it will help you do your part to save the environment.

Take mass transit whenever possible.

Obviously, this will be more applicable for people who live in or near a major urban area, but is good advice for anyone. But for those of you who can take advantage of mass transit, whether it’s riding the bus, taking the subway, or both, taking mass transit is a great way to save gas…. because you’re not using any!

I’ve read a couple of studies that show you don’t really save much (if any) money using mass tansit verus driving, so if saving money is what you’re after, it’s probably a push.

But, aside from saving gas, by taking mass transit, you’re helping to reduce the amount of emissions put into the air each day. That in and of itself may be worth taking mass transit, even if it doesn’t help you save much cash.

So, if you’re looking for a way to save gas that also has some intrinsic value, mass transit is the way!
